Kylie Lip Kit Dupes

I'm sure y'all have heard all about the crazy popular Kylie Lip Kits by Kylie Jenner. Homegirl is making serious money off those bad boys (they sold out in 30 seconds flat when they launched. Kudos to her). Each kit is $29, and comes with a matte liquid lipstick plus a matching lipliner. Currently the kits come in three shades: Candy K, Dolce K, and True Brown K. 

Personally, $29 per lip kit is currently out of my budget. The shades look poppin' though, and I do love a good matte I've been checking out the various dupes that people have suggested. After much research (that sounds so official doesn't it?), I purchased 3 Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks from Colourpop that have been suggested as dupes for the Kylie Lip Kits. I paired each Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick with my trusty MAC Lipliner in Chestnut (which is described on their site as an "intense brown"). If I did wind up purchasing one of the Kylie Lip Kits, I would probably purchase True Brown K...however I am pretty happy with how these dupes look on me. 

L-R: Clueless, Beeper, and Limbo

All of the Ultra Matte Liquid Lippies are $6.00 each on Colourpop's site. You're welcome.

This shade is "Clueless." It's described on Colourpop's site as a dusty mauve pink. I really do like the shade, however I did find this one to be more drying than the other Colourpop liquid lippies that I have. Clueless has been suggested as a dupe for the "Candy K" lip kit

This one is "Beeper" and Colourpop described it as a warm mid-tone taupe. It's been dubbed a dupe for the "Dolce K" lip kit. I've read that "Teeny Tiny" is also a good dupe for "Dolce K." 

Last but not least is "Limbo." I love this shade, and it kind of reminds me of  NYX Cosmetics "Maison" Matte Lipstick (which is less matte than Limbo. I definitely prefer Limbo). Colourpop simply describes Limbo as a deep chocolate brown, and that's pretty accurate. I feel like it looks like I melted a Hershey's Chocolate Bar on my lips. It's been said that Limbo was comparable to the "True Brown K" Kylie Lip Kit. 

If you have any of the Kylie Lip Kits, let me know if you feel like and of these dupes are spot on. I feel like they're a great affordable option, since I was able to get all 3 for $18 (less than the price of one lip kit, however the lip kits do come with lipliners). 

I will say that "Clueless" was a little bit drying, however I didn't experience that with "Beeper" or "Limbo." I love Colourpop's Liquid Lipsticks because they're long-lasting, stay put, and are super pigmented. I do suggest exfoliating and moisturizing your lips before applying them, but it's a good idea to do that before wearing any liquid lipstick. 

Which one of these shades are your favorite? Are there any Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip shades that you think that I should try? I own these, and LAX (which is definitely a must have)...but if you want to suggest a shade holla at me!
